Congratulations to our 2017 to 2019 cohort of Yoga Therapist trainees who have just completed three terms of on-campus course work and two off-campus practicums.

These 13 incredible women from around the globe came together through Yoga Therapy International’s 1000-hour program to learn the healing art of Yoga Therapy, Ayurveda and Yoga Philosophy as taught in the Krishnamacharaya-Desikachar lineage with contemporary influences from Iyengar Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Chair Yoga, Western Medicine/Psychology, Mindfulness Meditation, Business Practices, and so on. They comprise our third cohort and our biggest graduating CYT 1000-hr class yet!

Interview with Penny Noble, C-IAYT


My name is Penny Noble. I have been an educator throughout my career and have a Masters in Education and a Graduate Certificate in TESOL. I started my yoga training in 1996, in Australia, but didn’t feel I knew enough to teach. I also had reservations about some of the asana teachings for my body ― not all poses seemed to work for me, and I drifted away from yoga. Years later, I embarked on practicing yoga with an emphasis on therapeutics, and this seemed to make more sense to me, for my body, in my stage of life.

What does it mean to you to now be C-IAYT?

I am excited that the course I completed and my grandparenting application has been recognized by a formal accrediting body.
